really liked it

I read this book for my book club and found that I really enjoyed it. Once I got into the fact that the entire book was going to be told in letter form, I enjoyed the correspondance between all the different characters as a way to learn about the lives of those on Guernsey Island during the Nazi occupation during the second World War and how these people formed a group as a way to keep from being punished for being out after curfew as well as a way for them to mentally survive during the difficulties of the German occupation.
